Food for Thought

  • I&M – On Solitude Over 15 years ago, I took my first device-free, silent, solitude experience. 15 years and 100s of “solos” later, I can say the following with confidence: If I could give any bit of advice to my younger self, it would be to spend one or two Saturdays a month in device-free solitude 
  • JP –  On Ian Fleming As Craftsman – The new Bond movie finally premiered in London this week…
  • CF – Dangerous Feelings – “Success has a nasty tendency to increase confidence more than ability. The longer it lasts, and the more it was tied to some degree of serendipity, the truer that becomes.”
  • WSJ – Facebook’s Effort to Attract Preteens Goes Beyond Instagram Kids, Documents Show. *paywall*  It has investigated how to engage young users in response to competition from Snapchat, TikTok; ‘Exploring playdates as a growth lever’
  • NYT – The Cost of Insuring Expensive Waterfront Homes Is About to Skyrocket – Market based pricing of flood risk is beginning to creep into the long-subsided federal flood insurance program.  If you own a beach house, buckle up, prices are going up, way up.

My Book:

When Anything is Possible – Wealth and the Art of Strategic Living

The book is about how we shift from focusing on the things we want to avoid, to the things we want to accomplish with our wealth.  Doing so requires a person to articulate 3 key items –  Wealth Structure, Wealth Identity and ultimately a Wealth Strategy.  The book walks through each of these items in great depth, and guides the reader through a process to develop each.
